Handwritten Letters

I enjoy the inconsistency you put on display in writing letter "I".

Iโ€™ll say this over and over again: I prefer handwritten letters to printed letters. Iโ€™ve always been endeared with handwritten letters; the colour your ink bleeds, paper feel and scent, and your calligraphy infuses a lot of subliminal messages. I could tell your personality type by taking an eyeful look at your letter "g" and "y". I understand this might seem credulous but trust me, itโ€™s something I have done and will still do.

I enjoy the inconsistency you put on display in writing letter "I". Sometimes you make it extremely elongated indicating itโ€™s in capital form. Other times without watchfulness โ€”you just protect the letter at each end with a bar.

Often times I get cheesy while reading a handwritten letter, not because of the imaginary love I have for the penman but for the gelid feeling I derive from your subtle yet significant faux pas. It reminds me once again of life's journey to perfection.

On the other hand, beautifully written letters, often not overelevated are by far more soothing to the eyes than printed letters. This is because a lot of conscious mental effort is exigent and the emotions of the penman can literally be groped.
